Growler... Dark, mostly clear burnt orange ale with a small, creamy, khaki head. The aroma provides notes of chocolate, banana and dark fruits. Sweet, chocolaty flavor. Not too boozy. Banana esters. Light smoke and spice phenols. A whisper of mint. Medium-bodied with soft carbonation. Finishes sweet, chocolaty and fruity. Kudos to kmweaver for picking up the growler!

Cellared for a while. A story in licorice. Light black. Medium mouthfeel. OK drinkability. Alcohol not discerned with the sweetness going on.

Deep orange/brown beer. The aroma is lightly molassessy with orange peel, toast, roasted raisins, rum and sweet brown sugar. A bit of caramel with with a sort of cleanness that I think typifies better examples of this style. Toasty flavour with a light pruney plumminess. Fruity and rich finish. Rich light and fruity with a soft sweetness. I think they’ve got the malt profile down pretty well, but they need a more interesting yeast for this one.

Glad to have found this one for lunch today. The pour, in a goblet, was dark blackish with ruby hints and a khaki head. The aroma was very roasty malty, with some grapey fruit, hops, brown sugar, and almond. The palate was dense and complex, with well hidden alcohol, providing a base flavor of roasty malt, chocoff, cabernet, spice, brown sugar, and some rauchy notes. This one is stellar, and worth driving 3 hours for.

Ughsmash (7181) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 18, 2010
750mL bottle, I believe from 2007. Poured deeper iced tea brown with a creamy cap of dirty beige head.. looked good in the glass. The aroma picked up chocolate, toffee, and raisins with accents of vanilla and candi sugar.. light clove and other spicy accents.. warm and well presented. The flavor found molasses, raisins, sweeter chocolate, and boozy sugars (think a blend of rum and bourbon) at the core.. banana showed up as it warmed.. spicy yeast, alcohol warmth, and mature, complementary oxidation laced throughout.. memorable, warm, spicy finish. Heavier bodied with thick carbonation on the palate.. transitions were only OK between the rolling middle and sharper edges.. very good brew overall.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 12, 2008
Bottle thanks to eaglefan538: Pours a clear dark ruby mahogany with a fine-lacing wispy off-white head. Aroma of sweet, doughy caramel malt and light fruity esters with some Belgian yeast. Starts with good fullness and dark caramel malty sweetness along with a mild milk chocolate and brown sugar character toward a doughy, yeasty finish. A nicely balanced and fairly complex brew.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 31, 2007
Bottle. Pours brown with a thin white head. Smells of raisins, oak, chocolate, some bitter hints. Taste balances bitter with sweet nicely. Lots of chocolate and coffe hints present as are fruit and sweet malty characteristics. While this does not taste like an abt or quad, it is a very good beer.
